Abstract

This entry briefly explores some of the challenges associated with including individuals with disabilities in the participatory design of IT-based assistive technologies to support their disabilities. It presents a collated set of generalized guidelines for inclusive participatory design practice and then reflects on their application within two research projects, the goals of which were to design mobile assistive technologies for very different disabilities
